PIP appeal granted
My daughter has just been granted her appeal for PIP after waiting 11 months. The court date was set and 4 hours before we were due to attend we got a call from the court saying she didn't need to attend as she has won the appeal. We had been through the mandatory appeal, without success but for everyone who is going through this system please try not to give up, that is what they want. We are now waiting to hear from the court what award has been granted. My daughter is lucky she has us to help and assist her but even for me as a mother it was so stressful especially the descriptors and trying to explain one by one how my daughter copes on a day to day basis. The more you can describe on each descriptor the better. I am angry that the evidence was with the tribunal service for over 10 months and they couldn't make their decision based on it as that is what they used in the end. Now we will see if they backdate her claim. Can anyone tell me if this is mandatory to backdate from the start of the claim or is there a time limit? It has been mentioned that 3 months backdated is the maximum or the judge makes the decision.
